But the pharmacy profession is facing a combination of challenges it has never seen before: an ageing global population, increasingly complex and personalised medicines, as well as a move towards team-based integrated healthcare.
With those challenges comes the need for new thinking—from the next generation of practitioners and from those who teach them.
In response to these challenges, Monash University is preparing the students of today for tomorrow’s world of medicine, demography and healthcare by offering a new combined degree. From 2017, Monash Pharmacy will replace the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) with the new Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) / Master of Pharmacy combined degree, Australia’s first integrated BPharm (Hons)/ MPharm degree, with the fifth year of the course offering an internship, so students will get valuable work experience—and get paid for it!
